Yummy food, cool drinks, and a good place to rest your tired shopping feet!

Tubac Jack's is located in the heart of Tubac’s eclectic art district, and offers a very savory, fire-grilled burger! It’s topped with lettuce, tomato and red onion and served with ‘Home on the Range’ steak fries and a pickle spear. I opted to have Bacon, Swiss & Avocado Burger ($ 10.5) served up... read more

Being that Tubac Jacks is a bar/restaurant in a touristy town, I had no expectations. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The drinks were made well and the food exceeded expectations. Highly recommend. We live close by in Rio Rico so it's a "local" destination. We would definitely eat there again. Shout out to our server Nancy. Terrific!!

We were seated promptly, and service was very good throughout our visit. I had a mushroom and Swiss burger (very good), and my husband had fish tacos (also very good). My only criticism is that 2 of the things we ordered (a special wine and a dessert that's on the menu) weren't available. This may have been due to a... More

Nice margaritas, pork dishes, green chili stew, nachos and anything avocado. When my husband's shirt was the recipient of some errant bbq sauce, mgmt offered a Tubac Jack t-shirt - classy touch.

We found to the food here to be average although no complaints about the service. We had Mexican dishes and there are certainly better places for Mexican food in the area. The place was dead on the night we visited.

A pub-like atmosphere here and found the staff friendly and service was good. The meal was average, but would come here again just for the Chimi Cheescake dessert. Tortilla wrapped cheesecake (deep-fried I think), dusted with cinnamon and sugar and drizzled with caramel sauce. The patio was enjoyable as the temperature was not too hot.

Food was good, nothing to write Mom home about. I had the pork sandwich which was pretty tasty. Service was ok. Servers seemed a little rough around the edges. Had to ask for multiple items; napkins, ketchup, spoon for soup, etc. Our server although friendly, looked as if she wanted to be somewhere else. If you go, sit on the... More

Customer sure isn't impt here. Took forever to order. Took forever to pay. 2 of 3 orders were over cooked. Don't eat here unless you want to be annoyed.
